I have even driven and kept appointments during a weak category III a few years back.
When you do get into a Category 4 or 5 that is the 'hand of god' as far as destruction and those are not fun to ride out.
Grown men who survived portions of Andrew here at Category 5, cry like babies when they talk about what they went through that night and the fear and
destruction and death that resulted.
People who have been through a 4 or 5 tend to be far more cautious there after than people who have been in 1, 2's and threes.
